The goal of the Faculty Forum is to provide transparency and clarity around policies and practices for promotion to full professor.

It is clear that an understanding of policies and practices for promotion to full is very important, not only for Associate Professors, but also for Unit and College Review Committee Members, and Full Professors as they vote for promotion based on these policies and practices.

With this in mind, we strongly encourage all Associate Professors, Full Professors and all Members of the DRC/URC and CRC to attend. Having members of review committees present at the forum ensures that all involved in the review process for promotion to full have a common understanding of expectations around the process. We have convened a panel consisting of Joan Lorden, Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, and the Deans (or an associate) of all colleges.

The format is an interactive discussion, such that after each panel member has had an opportunity to talk about their expectations for promotion to full, the floor will be open for questions from participants.
